Nice and dark. Black brown with a slightly off-white head. Looks like a watery stout.
Malt character shines in the nose. Chalky dry coca, light herbal hops, roasty malts.
Tastes of more roasted malts, hoppy bitterness, bits of citrus but more pine and herbal hop notes. Some dark chocolate as well.
Medium bodied, smooth, with a relaxed carbonation.
A nice treat and a fair representation of the BIPA family. Definitely enjoyable and worth a try.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a chalice glass.
Appearance - Mine eyes be deceiving me! This looks like a porter/stout. If you were to tell me this was an IPA I would giggle at you profusely. I will be the first to admit that I do not have a lot of experience with Black IPAs, but this looks good. Very dark in color, tannish head.
Smell - a very earth smell, a mix of hops, grass, and a bit of a floral sweetness right at the beginning of the sniff.
Taste - a beautiful blend of hoppy bitterness and malty roastiness. I really enjoy this beer as so many IPAs focus on crushing your palate with hops at this point in time, this does not do that.
Mouthfeel - bueno
Overall - a really nice beer from Heavy Seas. I would drink it again, and probably recommend it as a try for friends.
